Product Details


Each year from 1995 to 2005, NS placed an order with GE for Dash 9 series locomotives, with a grand total of 1215 units delivered. They are used in all types of mainline service. Some units were equipped with an APU (auxiliary power unit) mounted on the walkway, which operated to provide basic locomotive systems while the prime mover was shut down, potentially saving fuel. The units on offer are from the 1998 order.

Built by GE from 1993 until 2004, the Dash 9-44CW and its variants were the definitive North American mainline freight locomotives of their time, with an impressive 3668 total units built. Constructed for US railroads from coast to coast, the units were also ordered by Canadian roads, and significant export orders went to Australia and Brazil.

The new Athearn Genesis 2.0 Dash 9-44CW is equally as impressive as its prototype, with a host of railroad specific details. From Canadian National’s unique “tear drop” windows to the early body details on Southern Pacific and Santa Fe, these models take the Genesis 2.0 line to new heights. Standard on all models are Athearn’s superior paint colors, reliable Genesis drive and LED lighting for years of trouble free operation.
